Team Newcarron Join Cycling Without Age Scotland At Awesome Kelpies Ride
25 August 2021
Newcarron Resident Kate and Activity Co-ordinator Hazel Phillips attended an exciting Cycling Without Age Scotland event at The Helix this August.
The girls joined the group of riders and passengers at The Kelpies to discover the names of two new CWAS trishaws and launch The Helix Chapter of the association.
Everyone is excited to hear that the trishaws would be named after Duke and Baron, the horses that inspired the phenomenal Kelpies sculptures.
Following the announcement, a ten-strong trishaw group rode the route between The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel.
It was a wonderful experience that Hazel says they’ll never forget.
Hazel said: “It was a terrific day, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
“We partner with Cycling Without Age Scotland regularly for trishaw rides, but this was something special.
“Kate loves getting outdoors in the fresh air and to enjoy the beautiful countryside around here, so I knew she’d make a great passenger.
“The whole team were fantastic, and it was a joy to spend time in their company.”
The new trishaws, Duke and Baron, were funded by Communities Along The Carron and Falkirk Common Good Fund.
Cycling Without Age Scotland already has 53 active chapters in the country, with five serving Falkirk and the local community. The Helix chapter is their first launch in their new ‘Trishaws In Iconic Places’ campaign.
Team Newcarron is delighted to work closely with CWAS and to give Residents the chance to participate in trishaw rides with our Colleagues.
